Coral skeleton

So my wife was digging through some boxes and found some old coral skeletons that her dad brought back from the Indian Ocean. Is it safe to place them in my fowler?

Just rinse them and soak them before adding to your tank. Should be fine.

No boiling them, curing them?

I assumed you already had live rock in your tank? If it's a large enough established tank, adding some base rock (coral skeletons) won't make a difference.

How large is your tank, how much rock do you already have?

I have a 72 gallon with about 35 lbs. of live rock which I'm getting more of this weekend. Fully cured.
